Whoa, baby - train-dodging infant in Australia a miraculous end to the week

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

How's this for a Friday happy-end-to-the-week story?

The 6-month-old baby in this video survived a faceplant onto the track and sudden meeting with a commuter train in Australia.

The train pushed the stroller about 130 feet along the tracks before it stopped while the frantic mother could only watch helplessly. The security video footage released Friday shows the mother looking away for a moment when the stroller suddenly rolls off the edge of a station platform and onto the tracks. The mother panics as she looks back and sees the oncoming train hit the stroller, but the baby boy survived with only minor injuries.

Victoria state Police Sergeant Michael Ferwerda called Thursday's incident a "lucky escape" and said people should be cautious in train stations.

Meanwhile, grumbling commuters were distraught over their train being delayed, but thankful it wasn't for anything as stupid as a boy in a balloon shaped like a flying saucer hoax scare.
